It almost sounds like your graphics card is overheating or causing your system to overheat after a while of playing. This would definitely cause your computer to slow or even come to a halt.

Try cleaning out the dust and make sure the fans are running well. You may have to add more fans or replace the ones that are in there. Also, if you are using the computer in a hot environment, you will need some other source of cooling the components such as liquid cooling.

I hope this helps :)

Best Regards,

James

Inspiron 1520-before finishes loading desktop screen goes black..


if it works fine in safe mode you should try a system restore . most of the time a problem that gos away in safe mode is driver related . IE software don't think you have a hard ware issue. you can call dell if you do not have the disk . 1-866-751-6079 call this number it's dell's Spanish tech support number but this is the fastest way to reach a real person at dell . just ask them to speak English and they will.

As it works ok in safe mode, I suggest you check that your graphics drivers are up to date.

You should be able to download the latest from the Dell website.

My Dell Inspiron 1520 will not load anything past the first Dell screen. It loads Dell then goes black with a flashing cursor in the top corner, I have tried pressing F8 to do a system restore but it never...


Hello, Beth.

The most common reason is memory. Try reseating (remove and reinsert) the memory, first.

Power off the computer and disconnect all cables. Flip the laptop to the back. Remove the battery. The memory cover has 8 screws. Remove the memory modules at a 25 degree angle and reinsert them by pushing them down firmly by the ends.

If reseating the memory doesn't solve your problem, one module may be bad. So, remove and test each module one at a time.

Hope this helps.

My screen on my dell inspiron 1520 has gone black


You've lost your desktop display.
The first thing I would do is to start the computer in safe mode. Once there, do a system restore back to the time that it worked.
I would also, just to be safe, do your disk management tasks like checking your hard drive for errors and running defrag.

Dear, Requested data was not in memory. An invalid system memory address was referenced. Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause this Stop message, as may other hardware problems. What you can do is if you have more than one memory modules, you can boot the system with single and see. If this is due to memory leakage issue, you can find it here

Well, look for the Fn button after logging on your compute. this button is normally on the left bottom of the keyboard, press it continuously then press the F8 button once,twice if there is no change then three times if it fails again, remember not to releases the Fn button while doing this.
